Dear Doug Hodel,

Thank you for investing in me.

Thank you for finding my treasures, for wandering my streets and back roads, exploring everything I have to offer, so beautifully, and inspiring others to do the same.

You are loved, friend.

All my love,

Head to the National Center for Children’s Illustrated Literature to check our their new exhibit featuring James E. Ransom!

“In the spring of 2017, the National Center for Children’s Illustrated Literature opened an exhibition featuring vibrant paintings by James E. Ransome in its exhibition, Everyday People: The Art of James E. Ransome.

While a few of the books represented are illustrated in watercolor, Ransome’s primary media exhibited in the gallery is acrylic and oil paints. The vivid colors seen in Ransome’s paintings work in perfect balance with the subject matter of his books. The books featured in this exhibition cover a wide range of subjects but what they all have in common is the celebration of the simple, joyful moments in life. Based on this, the exhibition is divide into three sections: Stories of the Land, People who made History, and Family Ties.”
